Teaching GAFE Reflection and new features

When teaching a GAFE class last week we introduce new features just released by Google.
Check out the Google Blog here on Accepting Questions from your audience

I plan on testing out with a few classes this week and provide an example here.
Note/Tip: to insert a Google Presentation into a Blog you must use File Publish and get the embed code and edit under html in the blog.

See example of a student asking questions of audience!

Bonus! Allowing your audience to ask questions isn’t the only way we’re improving the presentation experience on Slides today. We’re also making the following possible:

  • Use your mouse as a laser pointer in Slides on the web. Just choose the laser pointer option from the toolbar and move your mouse, and a red laser-like dot will appear in the same place on screen, helping your audience know where to look and when.
  • In the Slides iOS app, present to a new Hangout or to a Hangout selected from a meeting on your Google Calendar. For more information, check out the Help Center
What will you try with students and teachers when presenting your next presentation?
